What’s on in Ely, Littleport, Soham and Witchford
Back to Hockey for Beginners & Returning Players!
June 5 @ 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Tuesday, repeating until June 26, 2018
If watching the England Ladies and Mens teams win bronze at the Commonwealth Games brought back happy memories of when you last played hockey at school or college and you fancy having a go again, or you have never played before but would like to try, Ely City Hockey Club are hosting four Back to Hockey sessions this coming June for men and women of any age!
The sessions will be fun, social and informal and aimed at people who either haven’t played for a number of years or who are looking to play for the first time. Don’t worry if you are nervous or can’t remember any rules; the coaches will gently guide you through a series of fun and friendly sessions.
The sessions are free of charge and on the astro pitch at Ely Outdoor Sports Association (behind Ely Leisure Village). All you will need is a pair of shin pads and trainers. Astro boots are fine but no blades or football boots please! A mouthguard isn’t essential at this stage and hockey sticks can be borrowed if you don’t have one.
Having run around with a hockey ball for an hour, a cuppa and biscuit will be on offer in the Clubhouse afterwards.
To gain an idea of numbers, if you are interested in having a go it would be helpful, although not essential, if you could let David Carford know on 07906334587
